We had a very informative meeting with a great turn out! It is great to see our area getting a working Neighborhood Association. Your participation, wether in person or virtual, is incredibly important and we really couldn’t do it without you.
You can read about everything that happened with the attached meeting minutes.
A quick synopsis is that we had a representative from the City of Austin, Rey Hernandez, present on the Govalle Pool Improvements and it’s general timeline. You can see the full presentation HERE.
We also had a representative from the Cesar Chavez Foundation, Alfredo Izmajtovich, come speak to us about their partnership with ThinkEast. This partnership could really help a lot of the people being displaced in our area. There was also a brief discussion on the proposal by the City for Homestead Preservations Districts. The Housing Committee is keeping and eye on this issue. We as a Neighborhood Association will be integral in making sure that we guide the city to make this a positive change for our area. An overview of what the program might entail is attached HERE.
Finally, we had a representative from the Capital Metro tell us about the changes they will be making to help students from Eastside Memorial High School get to school safer.
As always, please feel free to contact us should you have any questions.
Happy Holidays and see you in the New Year!
